I’ve Been Nominated For An Award … I Think.

I have never been nominated for an award for my blogging, until now, so I am unsure how to feel. I will simply reply as directed for this to see what, if anything, might become of it. I have to say that I’m grateful.

Here’s the link to the blogs that trace back the nomination.  The Corruption  and Faint Signal  with a special thank you to Faint Signal.

I appreciate all kinds of different writers. Those who bare our emotions deserve special consideration and patronage. It is the writers from our pasts who have bared our inner feelings which inspire us today. At the edge of pornography and profanity are the very thing that occupy our minds most often and with the strongest influences. To ignore them when presented is itself a profanity. So it is that being nominated by a writer (Faint Signal) who plays in such spaces like a kid in a playground that I shall comply with the award rules. Enjoy

The ten question I must answer:

1. Your favourite colour = various shades and hues of purple

2. Your favourite animal = Wild ones, tame ones, all of them I think. Check some BBC for natural world info.

3. Your favourite non-alcoholic drink = Coffee

4. Facebook or Twitter = Twitter is in the sidebar, Facebook? What’s that?

5. Your favourite pattern = Artificial Intelligence

6. Do you prefer getting or giving presents = Giving

7. Your favourite number = Pi

8. Your favourite day of the week = today

9. Your favourite flower = is the one that is in bloom, or orchids.

10. What is your passion = Computing, AI, robots, learning, writing, being … strong emphasis on that last one

I want to add one here, not officially of course.

11. What is your favourite sound. – Mine is anything with the word metal in the genre name, the hammer dolcimer, the haprsichord, and on occasion the bagpipes. The last three deserve someone to wire them up and run them through a synthesizer setup and let the house fall where it may.

My personal nominees are as follows (In no particular order):

Dauson Stimpson-Gagnon

The Diary Of Kiki Kickass – though she probably will not answer on this one, no vamps involved?

Why Evolution Is True




Dead Wild Roses

Wait, stop right there.

You know what, I could go on with this for a long time. I find so many good writers that it is not fair to simply list a few. Please look at my comments on the About page or others. There you will find many people who have something that is not only interesting to say, they will probably make you think … the very point of writing in my opinion. Find the links, enjoy them all.

The rules are required to be posted with the answers above:

Here are the rules:

1. Provide a link and thank the blogger who nominated you for this award.

2. Answer 10 questions.

3. Nominate 10-12 blogs that you find a joy to read.

    Ah, I hate rules…. But I had to post it em as is. 🙂 Right Now I keep up with my fav four, which is you and 3 others. (Warm smiles)

    • I don’t read newspapers or watch television. I like reading real thoughts and feelings and opinions about the world. So I follow hundreds of blogs and scores of Youtube channels. I think I learn more that way.

      The things that you and others write about will not be found on tv or in libraries (at least not yet) and I find them so very important to us as a culture and society.

        Wow! I’m the same way! Neither do I watch the news or read the papers. I like watching movies and documentaries though. 🙂

        • Most of what I want to watch is on the Internet … and I’m forever indebted to Sir Tim Berners-Lee. He has set information free. He has created the world where you and I can interact, and there is no methods more useful for what the world needs.

  1. Hey congratulations on the nomination. It’s always nice to have your writing recognized.

    • It is, but it is more powerful to have subscribers… the proof is in the pudding, so they say. I posted as much. It is not awards but that people follow or subscribe that inspires me. I’m grateful for each comment, each follow, each like. It means that I’m not the only person that feels as I do. That is important to all of us.
